TRION SPECIAL - SAK 100% COTTON MERCERIZED

SAK Cotton has a longer staple length and is a superior grade of cotton as compared to CP cotton. The process of mercerizing refers to the treatment of cotton under tension in a caustic solution which produces the shiny look. This process also increases the basic yarn tensile strength by 12-15%. Mercerized thread is available in natural, bleached or dyed with various degrees of color fastness.
